I was stunned when our jeep turned a corner in Chobe National Park and we saw all of these elephants.

That would definitely be a surprise! Great photo.
a pleasant surprise. Chobe National Park is a treasure.
So cool. I love elephants and would love to see them in the wild one day!
I hope you do!
Elephants are my favorite! I can’t believe you got to see the babies as well. Incredible. They are such magnificent creatures up close.
The babies are so adorable and it was great to see the adults interact and protect them.
I’m so jealous! That sounds amazing… there is an incredible planet earth episode that showcases the elephants – apparently they are the only animals that mourn the loss of their loved ones..
The more I travel the more I’m amazed about this earth. It’s wonderful. And you can see how the elephants interact with each other how much they care about each other.
What a rare opportunity to see a herd of elephants. Thinking of the enormity of each individual, that would be a sight to behold.
It really made an impression on me to see all of them at once. I wonder what it was like hundreds of years ago.
That is awesome.
Such a cool thing to see!
It really was
…. stumbling across eleohants what ever next TBM :-)… just wonderful to see them happily mooching together there .
I’m curious to see what animals we’ll see in Malaysia this May.
That must have been a fantastic experience. Elephants are so lovely.
They are, and slightly intimidating when you are so close.
That is such a cute picture!
Cool! 🙂 I wish I could see elephants for real too… Maybe someday I will.. Keep on posting your travels!
You never know, you may. Ten years ago I didn’t think I would see them.
May you be an angel/genie for that day to arrive…. 🙂
I would be surprised too, and excited to be having the opportunity to see this! Cool shot!
They look so much at peace…enjoying each other’s company.
Very family like. It’s a beautiful thing to witness.
i can not imagine how your heart must have jumped. oh the joy of seeing those amazing animals.
I think the entire time I was in Africa my heart was racing.
I love elephants. I watched a documentary on them last night and it is so sad what global warming is doing to their water supplies. Makes me mad! I hope I will get a chance to see them like this.
I hope you do. I want everyone to be able to see them. I saw a brief clip of a documentary on glaciers this morning–yes I understand your anger. I really do. This planet is so amazing and I wish global warming and such didn’t impact it at all. So sad.
This makes me smile. 60 years ago, you would have been shooting the elephants with a gun instead of a camera. I must get myself to Botswana.
Yes, Botswana will blow your mind.
That would be absolutely amazing!!! You are SO lucky to have experienced that.
Trust me I feel really lucky
Thats what counts! 🙂
